Western Hockey League commissioner Ron Robison has opened himself up to a whole lot of headaches.
The WHL is a launching a fan program — Ask the Commish.
According to the WHL site, starting this weekend WHL fans can submit questions for the Commish via Twitter and Facebook.
From the questions submitted, the best of the bunch will be selected and WHL Commish Ron Robison will answer your questions via video on the WHL website, Twitter and Facebook.

Responding to the weekly 'Ask the Commish' posting here with your question.
The WHL posted sample questions: Why are only three 20 year-olds allowed on a team? Why are not all games officiated by two referees? How is the WHL schedule determined?
Really? I'd want to know the answers to more than that.
Answer me this, Mr. Commish: Why does a player get a one-game suspension for 5 embellishment penalties, but a guy like Spokane's Darren Kramer has been in a league-high 19 fights and has not been suspended?
Or: The officiating has been the worst I have seen in years, despite programs for officials. What's in the works to fix this problem?
Or: Lukas Walter (Tri-City) gets six games for a one-man fight, but Campbell Elynuik (PG) gets four games for the same violation. Why the difference?
I encourage you to flood Ron Robison's Twitter account and Facebook with questions. Inquiring minds want answers.
